chessbase question Hi, I am using chessbase to calculate variations in my games. One thing is very bothersome though: when I pick up a piece/pawn, another square becomes outlined. Usually, that outlined square is not the worst move I could make - to say the least. However, I checked before importing the games, that all the installed engines were disabled, the "create threats"-box is disabled as well etc. What else should/could I switch/turn off which I haven't thought of yet in order not to have the constant feeling I am cheating somehow - even if unintentional...

Basically I want something that in a very clear fashin records my moves - nothing more, and I guess chessbase should be able to do just that...

thanks for any advice!

I had the same problem… albeit with different software. If I recall, I was able to turn off the preference entitled "predict
move on click". See if Chessbase has something like this that you can disable. It most certainly
should, because otherwise it is offering advice—though unwanted.

Chessbase 8 Tools - Options - Engines and there you can choose to use or not to use Heumas (this is the name of this "predict move function" in CB).
Good luck.

Thanks! Found it and turned it off. Quite irritating at times when you pick up a piece and it stubbornly wants to go nowhere but g3 :o))

heumas… is apparently short for Heuristic Move Assistant. Not terribly intuitive—no wonder you couldn't
find it. Sounds like the GUI was designed by programmers.

I keep Heumas off when analyzing correspondence games because when it is on the engine makes suggestions--this, it seems to me, is clearly against the rules.
